There is no turning back now! Tomorrow, I am lining up for my 8th marathon!
I arrived in Louisville Wednesday afternoon to spend a little extra time with my family. My dad has 5 other siblings, and they all live here, so I have a lot of people to visit with! My cousin is also running the marathon, so we headed to the expo last night to grab our race packets before the crowds hit. It was held downtown at the convention center, and was very easy to get in and out of!
There were zero lines everywhere I went. Big win to get to expos early! I grabbed my packet and took a quick walk through the official merchandise and other vendors. Compared to other expos, it was a pretty small event, but was organized well.
The course was posted and it has changed since the last time I ran the race. I am looking forward to a new route, and hopefully a little less hills than last time I ran it – fingers crossed!
I am pretty excited to sport a Boston ribbon in support of all of those affected during my race tomorrow. The race staff was nice enough to give all of the runners ribbons to pin on our race shirts. I know that I will be running these miles for everyone that wasn’t able to finish Boston on April 15th. Anyone else dedicating your spring race to those runners?
Ohh, something fun I just have to share. I think there is quite a lot of truth to this – what do you think?!
Well, the forecast for tomorrow is looking like cold rain for the whole race. I have run in the rain multiple times, but never for this long of a distance, or in the cold. I would love your tips on anything I can wear or use to help me out! I really haven’t set a goal for this race. Just looking to have some fun and enjoy the race. Regardless, I don’t want to be uncomfortable for the whole race because of the race!
See you on the other side of 26.2! Let me know your cold and rainy marathon tips!! I could really use them!
